Quick Snippets

Published on Thursday, June 16, 2005 in , , , , , ,

Today's entry just contains a few quick items:

* Barrie Richardson's new book Act Two, which I mentioned in a previous entry, has been re-scheduled for release on June 24th (instead of June 3rd). It seems that when the initial run was received by Hermetic Press, all the semi-colons were replaced with multiplication signs.

* Now here's an unusual memory feat: David Rosdeitcher has built an act around his identity as the Zipcode Man. During his act, he asks for people's zipcodes, and invents stories about his audience, based on the city they in which they live. If you would like to get a sense of the scale of this feat, check out this extensive list of zipcodes. Better yet, check out this graphical implementation of Zipcodes.

* Lastly, here's a quick bit of humor from the Onion: Helen Heep reminds us that, as impressive as any of the mental feats you read about on this blog may be, it's not nice to be smarter than other people.
